Clinical trials

The European Union Clinical Trials Register allows you to search for protocol and results information on:
  • interventional clinical trials that are conducted in the European Union (EU) and the European Economic Area (EEA);
  • clinical trials conducted outside the EU / EEA that are linked to European paediatric-medicine development.
  • Learn   more about the EU Clinical Trials Register   including the source of the information and the legal basis.


    The EU Clinical Trials Register currently displays   42752   clinical trials with a EudraCT protocol, of which   7042   are clinical trials conducted with subjects less than 18 years old.
    The register also displays information on   18700   older paediatric trials (in scope of Article 45 of the Paediatric Regulation (EC) No 1901/2006).


    Phase 1 trials conducted solely in adults and that are not part of an agreed PIP are not public in the EU CTR (refer to European Guidance 2008/C 168/02   Art. 3 par. 2 and   Commission Guideline 2012/C 302/03,   Art. 5) .

    Clinical Trials marked as "Trial now transitioned" were transitioned to the Clinical Trial Regulation 536/2014 and can be further followed in the Clinical Trial Information System  
     
    Examples: Cancer AND drug name. Pneumonia AND sponsor name.

    E.2 Objective of the trial
    E.2.1Main objective of the trial
    This pilot study primarily aims to verify the feasibility of practicing the combined approach on GIST patients treated with imatinib, evaluating:
    1. The proportion of patients successfully monitored according to the protocol among the enrolled patients;
    2. The time required for Cmin determination with conventional and new strategies for a simplified sample collection (DBS and microcapillary tubes);
    3. The time required for giving the clinicians the results of the combined analysis (Cmin and ctDNA).
    Valutare la fattibilità di un nuovo approccio per il monitoraggio simultaneo delle concentrazioni plasmatiche di farmaco e dello stato mutazionale del tumore attraverso l’analisi del ctDNA con il fine di valutare eventuali variazioni nell’esposizione al farmaco ed individuare possibili marcatori precoci di resistenza al trattamento in pazienti affetti da GIST e trattati con imatinib. La fattibilità verrà valutata in termini di:
    1. Numero di pazienti monitorati con successo secondo il protocollo sul totale dei pazienti arruolati.
    2. Tempo richiesto per il TDM con la metodica convenzionale e con nuove strategie per la raccolta semplificata del campione (Dried Blood Spot (DBS) e microcapillari)
    3. Tempo necessario per fornire la risposta dell’analisi combinata Cmin-biopsia liquida ai clinici
    E.2.2Secondary objectives of the trial
    • To evaluate the possibility to early detect tumour progression through ctDNA analysis in patients’ plasma samples in course of treatment.
    • To verify the possible correlation between imatinib exposure and response (TTP), overall and by tumour mutational subtype;
    • To validate a point-of-care-testing (POCT) TDM (electrochemical biosensors and molecularly imprinted polymers);
    • Valutare la possibilità di identificare precocemente, tramite l’analisi di ctDNA, la progressione di malattia.
    • Verificare la possibile correlazione tra l’esposizione di imatinib e la risposta (in termini di tempo alla progressione) stratificando i pazienti in base allo stato mutazionale del tumore
    • Validare nuove metodiche per il TDM (biosensori elettrochimici e molecularly imprinted polymers);
    E.2.3Trial contains a sub-study No
    E.3Principal inclusion criteria

    E.4Principal exclusion criteria
    Pregnancy status; Refusal of informed consent; non-collaborative and/or unreliable patients; Patients who could not attend periodic clinical check-ups.
